October 3- Money Magic: Currency and markets are meant for adults, but your allowance says otherwise. Learn how money has changed and how yours can be put to better use, even if that only means convincing mom to buy ice cream instead of cereal tonight.

October 31- Anthropological Digs: Dinosaurs are cool, but human history is just as interesting. Don an anthropologist's gear as we dive into the findings of human culture.
November 7- Squid Dissection: These ocean creatures range from the size of your finger to the size of a whale. Join us to look inside our cephalopod friends and better understand why they move the way they do.
November 21- Intro to 3D Design: 3D Modeling takes your imagination and brings it to life. Come learn how to design your own creations and take home a 3D printed keychain.
December 5- Detective Science: Forensics looks awesome on TV, but what does it really mean to be a crime scene investigator? Bring a friend to learn how the shows mirror real science and solve a mini-mystery.
December 19- Coding with Dash: The future has many possibilities, but it seems all of it will be written in code. Come learn how to program a robot and see why this is the language of the future.
